Save button extension

Hi Expertz,

I am working on some functionality that when even a user clicks on Save button a new VF form should comes up alogn with some differemnt fields.

Then when ever user click the OK button on the new VF page all the data should commit to Salesforce.

I don't have any clues for this that how to even start as i a newbie, Kinldy assists.

that's because you've overridden the Save command and it running it from your extension....where the only code is to perform the page redirect.  You'll need to write a save dml statement there before the redirect.

For this you have to develop wizard kind of page. You have to develop custom apex code and custom vf page to accomplish this.

Hi Expertz,

Thanks for your responses, But i have one more issue with the same.

Using action method, I am able to save the Record data and able to navigate this to the new page, but when user navigate to the other page. I want to save the new page data as chlid record for the first page. but i not able to find the way in which i can carry the First page record ID to the second page.

Kindly help.

After saving the first page record, you can redirect the page with Record Id and you can get Parent Id from there.

public PageReference save(){
    Account acc = new Account();
    acc.Name = 'Account Name';
    Insert acc;
    PageReference ReturnPage = new PageReference('/CustomPage?parentid=' +;    return Returnpage;

Save method from first page should work like above and second page controller should get the parent id from the url and create child record.
